AN EPIDEMIOLOGIC INVESTIGATION OF OCCUPATION, AGE, AND EXPOSURE IN GENERAL AVIATION ACCIDENTS

This study involved a census of 4,491 general aviation accident-involved airmen records for the year 1974 to obtain relevant occupation, age, exposure, and other epidemiologic profile information of a descriptive nature. Population comparison data for occupation, age, and exposure were obtained from a sample of 9,414 currently certified airmen medical records as of December 1974. Occupation was studied under assumptions of similar exposure, total cumulative exposure by occupation, and recent exposure by occupation with the outcome under at least two methods of analysis being the identification of physicians, lawyers, sales representatives, farmers, and housewives as having high accident experience.
